Budgeting: The Hardest Thing
The hardest thing about budgeting is tracking my expletive-expletive-something-something spending.
I've tried Quicken. (Blurgh.)
I've tried Mint.
I've tried cash only.
None of these things have worked for me for very long, and I'm not sure how I'm going to set up a system that works for both me and Seth, is free, and doesn't involve training a computer to understand me.
Ideas? Because as much as I enjoy working on the spreadsheet, it doesn't help me a whole lot if there's no connection to reality.t
